Degree and Program Requirements

Earning a U of T degree requires completion of specialist, major or minor programs plus additional degree requirements. 

When deciding on what courses to enrol in, you can compare your academic history with your program and degree requirements by using Degree Explorer. It is best to review your academic history and meet annually with a faculty/program advisor in the relevant academic department to review program requirements AND an academic advisor in the Office of the Registrar to review your degree requirements.

Your resource for checking course, program and degree requirements is the Academic Calendar. You will follow the program requirements listed in the Academic Calendar for the session that you enrolled in the program (i.e., If you enrolled in a program in the Summer of 2016, you would follow the program requirements listed in the 2016- 17 Academic Calendar). Brief course descriptions are noted in the calendar and more information is available on program websites and in program or departmental handbooks. Make sure to check your program requirements each time you consider adding or changing courses, or if you consider changing programs of study.

You will follow the degree requirements listed in the Academic Calendar for the session you were admitted to the university as a degree student (i.e., If you were admitted to the university beginning September 2015, you would follow the degree requirements listed in the 2015-16 Academic Calendar).
